Why We Serve is an ongoing series highlighting the service and sacrifices made daily by the Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors and Marines of Regional Command-East. After more than a decade of conflict in Afghanistan, this series is dedicated to telling the service members’ story. Since 9/11, millions of Americans have volunteered to fight on behalf of their country. Regardless of branch, rank, age, gender or
ethnicity, these service members share a common bond of service. These are their stories, and this is why they serve.
The RC-East Public Affairs team assists with the free and open reporting by the media through engagement with international, regional and local media in a planned, timely and accurate manner. Media opportunities, embeds, and interviews will be conducted wherever appropriate within the rules of operational security.
